Fine Dining in Aqua

For our first anniversary my boyfriend and I decided to splash out on dining at Aqua in Hong Kong. This restaurant has one of the best skyline views of Hong Kong, as we booked a a few days beforehand we were unable to get a window seat but there are mirrors everywhere so regardless of where you are sitting, you will be able to bask in the beautiful view of Hong Kong. 

The restaurant is massive and the main eye catcher are the windows which stretch from the floor to the ceiling so you can see the bright lights of Hong Kong. My boyfriend and I ordered wine first, which was incredible, it was about $80HKD for a glass and was just delicious. 

The food was just wow! The salad with lobster, lemon jelly was just sublime, the scallops were cooked perfectly and the ravioli was incredible. My writing does not do this place justice so I would say go there if you are willing to spend a lot of money. They have a minimum order of $480 or something like that, my boyfriend and I ended up spending around $1250HKD. Its pricey but you are paying for the great good and view.
